    Kevin (CEO, PROOF) is joined by Derek (Collab+Currency), Amanda (PROOF Culture and Community), Sam (NFTStats; PROOF Director of Research), and Eli (PROOF Head of Art) for the show this week. 

    The crew talks about the upcoming Cozomo event at The Foundry before diving into Blur’s BLAST– what is it and why are so many people putting their ETH into it? Then they discuss the comeback of Solana NFTs and opportunities for generative art on SOL.
